Situation - Situated on the edge of the town with views to the rear over open countryside yet the centre of the town is within easy reach. The old and new blend perfectly in Malmesbury, narrow medieval streets, ancient monuments and historic gems are complimented by modern shopping and quaint boutiques. This thriving pretty market town offers a wealth of buildings of architectural interest including its ancient Abbey, whilst also having a wide range of shops, services, schooling and leisure facilities available. Early tributaries of The River Avon pass around the town with pretty walks and the countryside close at hand. There are public transport services and good road access to the larger towns of Cirencester, Chippenham, Swindon, Bath and Bristol whilst the M4 junction 17 is only five miles south. Trains from Chippenham (10 miles) and Kemble (5 miles) link with London Paddington within approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.
